Day-2 (evening)

Today is Chemo Day 4, the last day of chemo, the last 3-shower-day. The nausea and loss of appetite started mid-day yesterday, and the vomitting started early this morning. I am feeling a bit better now, so am able to post.

Hmmm…I’m thinking to myself this is only the beginning and it feels horrible already. I feel so low on energy and have to take a nap every time I get up for a washroom break. I am able to eat about half of my meal which is still very good. But I can no longer drink plain water. It makes me throw up. I have to drink ginger ale.

That little blue pill I ask for at night helps me sleep for 4-5 hrs straight. That’s good.

Tomorrow is my only radiation day. I get total body irradiation tomorrow twice, once in the morning, once in the afternoon. Then, my “conditioning regimen” is complete.

    Hey Winnie – so sorry to hear that the nausea is upon you already…but it’s good to know that the chemo is almost done…stay positive – the road ahead is a rough one but it is definitely do-able…if this “old” broad could do it – a young chick like you will kick it out of the park..Hang in there!

    Sending prayers and good thoughts your way…I am in Hamilton on Thursday this week and was trying to figure out a way to get there to visit, but I don’t think I will be able to…I have Drs. appts from 12-4pm at 2 different hospitals…and then a 4 hour drive home…private message me your mailing address – I want to send you something!!
